The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show clearly captivated audiences. How could a one-hour telecast of barely clothed women, jaunting around in diamond undergarments not draw in such a crowd?
The numbers are in and boy are they astonishing. According to Nielsen, the sexy show drew in 9.71 million viewers with a rating of 3.4 among key 18-to-49-year-olds. Those sky-high numbers made it a top-rated telecast among young adults on the major networks. While its rating in the demographic fell 6% from last year, the entire viewership increased by 2%.
But how did the other stations hold up during the fashion show?
While ABC saw a gain with comedy, "The Goldbergs" (up 21% to a 1.7) they seemed to get less of a reaction from the comic book series, "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." The midseason finale dropped 23% in 18-49 to a rating of 2.0.
CBS won the night outright with an average audience of 14.4 million and an 18-49 rating of 2.8.
